After the moving company packed up most of our stuff, this is what the living room looked like with the floors still in place
The plumber came and took out the sink, the electrician removed the stove, the microwave, and the oven, and the granite guy came and took off our counter tops. I didn't realize what a habit it was to come home, put my handbag on the island, and how often I actually go to the kitchen sink to wash my hands, fill up the dog's water dish, etc. What a pain.
This was yesterday, in the kitchen with all my lower cabinetry gone, the fridge gone and the flooring, gone.
We are squished like sardines with the four dogs in the master bedroom and it's about to get even more squished as we move out of the master into the guest room. As long as we are knee deep in dust and debris, we've decided to have the carpet removed in the master and the hardwoods extended in there.
I think this spring with all the allergies we usually suffer from, not having carpet in our master might make a difference.
I'm trying to be patient, I'm trying to keep a smile on my face as I know many people have it much, much worse. This is also the kick in the butt we've needed to really start getting rid of all the excess "junk" we have around here and don't need.
I'm hoping this process goes quickly.
